What have I done?!?

This is some of the work I’ve done. The first one up is a project that deals with labels, and insults, the figures say pejorative things to each other like “You throw like a girl.” (for the male) or “That’s not very lady-like of you” (for the female). The phrases are cut and looped to create a rhythm, taking the power out of the words. The second piece title “Shelter from the Storm” creates an environment reminiscent of camping in a rainstorm. The video lights up the tent like a flashlight, all around you here the sounds of variations of rain. The video is 11 minutes looped and has a tendency to suck people into watching it for long periods of time. Almost like staring at a campfire. The final piece, for this blog deals with to quote the musical RENT “Living with not dying from disease.” Each clip board represents a chronic, and in some cases terminal illness. The aesthetic comes from medical encyclopedias where you pull a piece of plastic and remove the lymphatic system to reveal the skeleton. In this piece, instead you pull off layers of words to reveal a person’s face, and the body part affected. All layered together it is very confusing like when you try to explain to your friends and family what you have and what will happen.
